HOW CAN WE HELP?
The team at WRI undertook an extensive research of Skillset’s Economic and Human Capital impacts on the economy of NSW. WRI provided a timely response, showed they were experts in the domain, listened to our needs and produced a highly readable report in modern format. Skillset has been able to use the report and analysis as the basis for grant applications, operational and strategic planning and to demonstrate the value our services add to the economy of NSW. The Human Capital analysis provided useful information about the value education adds to a student’s earning capacity and also to the profits businesses can achieve after training staff.
CEO and Director of Regional Development
Regional Development Australia Far South Coast engaged WRI to undertake analysis to assess the implications and impacts transport linkages have upon access to employment and training in the Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla and Bega Valley local government areas. WRI engaged with 78 key stakeholders via surveys and interviews to produce a report that provided much needed detail on the specific issues the Far South Coast should address to ensure improved access for locals to employment and education opportunities.
Economic Development Officer
WRI provided Bega Valley Shire Council with an informative Labour Force and Capabilities Report and a Practical Resources Guide assessing current and future needs of jobs and skills in the Council’s region. It’s been a great experience to have WRI on our team. They brought a professional can do attitude and adapted to many pressures, including fires, flood and COVID impacts, through out the project. The community consultation used WRI’s Big Ideas methodology to capture community sentiment and ideas to help drive long term growth for the region.
WRI always goes above and beyond to deliver quality work. The process of working with WRI is always smooth and the team is a delight! It is wonderful to work with a team of highly skilled people based in regional NSW and who understand the regional context.
Each time we've used WRI the methods of data analysis and reporting have been very rigorous and that assures us we are getting a quality report with actionable data and summations at the end of the process.
